Algae issues

Recently within the last couple of weeks I have been battling with algae, green slime and red hair two very different types. I finally done with it and need to get to the bottem, i thought it was a bacteria bloom but i pretty sure its not anymore. I tested my RODI today and found out it was reading 002 ppm so i went ahead and changed all my filters and resin and got that solved, i know 002 is a little high but I really dont think that caused it. On to nitrates and Phospates, i dont have time to test tonight but tomorrow i will. But for some odd reason I really dont think they are off due to my corals having amazing growth these past few weeks. My acros and Milli's have both put on 1.5 in in a few weeks time, most of my LPS have split heads, and my zoas are doing great....in two weeks my blue hornets (3) have doubled to 6 and 2 red hornets to 4. My Clam looks great as well. The only bad thing that happened in the past few weeks that sucked was I lost my Cleaner which Ive has for a year. The pictures are a little tough to see but they came out good enough.

Did you ever end up testing your nitrates and phosphates?
I've learned that aquariums are super addicting, yet so frustrating to perfect.
